Kennesaw’s Pigs & Peaches Festival
Experience the mouth-watering aroma and delicious taste of smoke-cooked barbeque, savor every heavenly bite of sweet peach desserts, and take delight in every moment of fun at the City of Kennesaw's Pigs & Peaches BBQ Festival this Friday and Saturday, August 23 and 24. The festival features a Kansas City Barbeque Society sanctioned BBQ competition, which is recognized as a Georgia Barbecue Championship contest; as well as a Backyard BBQ, Anything Butt and Peach Dessert Contest. Over $15,000 in cash and prizes will be awarded to contest winners. Enjoy live music, a family entertainment stage, a Kid Zone featuring inflatables, interactive games and other child-friendly activities, food and beverage vendors, and a street festival atmosphere of arts, crafts and general merchandise — including a selection of sponsor booths with unique products and services. And new this year, the City of Kennesaw is teaming up with GO Kickball to host "Kickin' Pigs", a recreational coed kickball and cornhole tournament, during the 2013 Pigs & Peaches BBQ Festival. Prizes will be awarded to the winning teams. Click here for details.
